In a recent interview with Shannon Sharpe on Club Shay Shay, Chris Tucker revealed what went into the making of the movie, Friday.

According to Tucker, the film was a fairly simple production with limited resources.

Tucker shared that he was only paid $10,000 for his role as Smokey which he admitted he didn't really care because the opportunity was more important to him.

All it took was a camera, Ice Cube, a front porch and him to make some magic happen.
